The Rules


Right here are the rules as they stand at the moment after explanation, discussion and modification. Any questions or farther discussion can you put them in the rules discussion thread ? Thank you  :thumbsup:

1.  Group Build runs from 00.01 Wednesday 1st June 2016 to 24:00 Wednesday 31st August (all times GMT).  If people would rather run Friday to a Sunday then let me know.

2)  “In the Navy” is taken to mean any naval subject, so ships, boats, submarines, naval aircraft and Marine forces where they are part of a Navy. Does not need to be at sea, you could have riverine and lake based as well. Plus having just re-read E.E. Doc Smiths Skylark series I’m reminded there are numerous watery planets in Sci Fi. Note that naval vehicles can be included in the scope of this build, so if you wish to play with an Amtrack, play with it.

3)  You may build, draw or write as many entries as you like (good luck!).  The posting of in-progress pictures is encouraged as always.  Back stories - however long or short - win extra points.  Well OK they don't but they're always nice to see.

4)  "Preparation" work is allowed prior to the start of the GB - this includes the cutting out and cleaning up of parts, even printing your own decals (!), but anything involving paint or glue is not allowed. 

5)  Part-started models will be considered by the moderator. You should explain what you have done or post pics (even better) and I will decide, my decision being final - we are relying on the honour of our membership to uphold this rule.

6)  No rule 6 - is there ever a rule 6 ?
7) Moderators - Me, that's right just me so I'm pretty laid back about this so you should all be as well  ;D

8)  The GB is to be conducted in the true Olympian spirit - it's not the winning but the taking part.  Coming top of the pile (or is that stash?) does add to the enjoyment though and the winner will receive a handcrafted illuminated scroll prepared by the monks of Lindisfarne .  In the event of a tie there will not be a 'whif-off', the honours will be shared.

OK by Imperial Decree you have a two week extension.

GB now finishes at midnight (wherever you are) on the 14th September
